Performance: Natascha Sadr Haghighian

Part of 9 Artists

Join the artist for performer/audience/file, an in-gallery performance that includes a cyclone vacuum cleaner, live drawing, and audience participation to produce a unique work of art for the 9 Artists exhibition.

About the Artist

Natascha Sadr Haghighian abjures biography altogether, for instance she sees the artist résumé as a shorthand simplification that rates the individual according to past institutional affiliations, or regulates them according to conventional markers of identity (age, nationality, and so on). The exhibition features key works from the past several years as well as a newly commissioned work that arises from a challenge by the artist to the website ArtFacts.net to stop collecting her exhibition history and her “ranking” for an international art audience.

Funding

9 Artists is organized by the Walker Art Center.

Major support for the exhibition is provided by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional support is generously provided by Lisa and Pat Denzer and Audrey and Zygi Wilf.

The exhibition catalogue is made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in support of Walker Art Center publications. Additional support is provided by Isabella Bortolozzi Galerie, Gavin Brown’s enterprise, Galerie Buchholz, and Marian Goodman Gallery.
